AMBASSADOR SPOTLIGHT
Motto or Favorite Quote:
Do all things in love.

Main lesson you've learned in life: You never know what tomorrow will bring. Embrace today, and take nothing for granted.

What are you currently most excited about with your work/career? We will be relocating our office early this summer, to a newly constructed building in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.

As a Chamber Ambassador, how have you benefited professionally and personally? The benefits of being a Chamber Ambassador include making business connections that you might not otherwise make, getting the opportunity to see and experience businesses in the Siouxland area that you may not have known were here, and the opportunity to make some great friends.
